"Intimate chic" is one expression that has been used to describe Nine Elm. Yes, sometimes less is more. With only nine (coincidental?) tables and six bar seats, the place is personal; with so few people being served at one time, the preparation of each dish receives the attention it deserves and the results of such deliberation are palatable. At the helm of Nine Elm are chef Matt Sanidas and his wife, Jean. They’ve assembled an eclectic menu catering to meat lovers, lean protein seekers, and oft-forgotten vegetarians alike with plates like Grilled Filet Mignon, Artichoke Crusted Salmon, and Butternut Squash Ravioli.
